josh minker's father photo

It appears that the mysterious man in the chat room has made good on his promise to upload a picture of Josh Minker's father to the STIES site. A folder has appeared on the desktop behind the terminal window and the print window. If you open the folder called 'Photos' you will find an image named 'ScanAM13'. The file name seems to indicate that his name is A. Minker(?) Using the same password that we used to gain access to the chat 'toadfish112' you will find a picture of an African American man who we're assuming is Josh Minker's Father. If you cross reference the photo with the ID badges that were found a few weeks ago, you will notice that there is only 1 African American person featured on those badges. He is a technician with the following information.


Authorization: "3 Dots"
Identification: 58-ORPH-42
Duty Assignment: Technician
Grade: (--)
Expiration: RW-536-RD

Image: Male ~6'2", African American?, "TROGL"
Image ID: 07-CES-8RB

mr minker id badge

Here is the picture that you will find within the photos folder. You can clearly see the orientation of the 3 dots on the ID badge he is wearing coincide with the 3 dots in the ID badge above...

mr minker

It's no coincidence that his ID badge is the one that had the letters 'TROGL' written on it, I'm fairly confident that Josh Minker is African American (or at least 1/2 since we're not sure if his mom is or not). TROGL is obviously going to have some importance in things to come so keep an eye out for those letter anywhere you can.

There are more screenshots of the STIES site after the jump. And thanks to all that left comments about the update.

    Not sure but has anyone tried typing in TROGL in a search engine to see if it brings up a new website?

  2. Meagan says: but it doesnt load for me, i found it on google

  3. Meagan says:

    T – Training / Testing / Technology and
    R – Research
    O – Operations
    G – Groom
    L – Lake

    this is random but found it on another site lol

    • KillBunny says:

      Don’t forget about this one.


      Wasn’t the train that crashed in the trailer id’d as “Transport Rail One”?

      • admin says:

        There was no mention of “Transport rail one” in the original voice over heard in the teaser trailer. The actual transcript is as follows:

        “Groom Lake One, Wright-Patt SITREP ETA. Over.”
        “Wright-Patt, Groom Lake One actual. Cargo intact, ETA on schedule.”
        “Copy Groom Lake One, expect your..OH MY GOD.”

  4. Joshua Arispe says:

    Well, that was unexpected…

  5. Joshua Arispe says:

    my theory is that, since josh never seen his father, he was surprised that he is african american.

    and, did anyone try to look for anything in the picture. I see another man with another id card.

  6. Meagan says:

    Well that one i put up because..groom lake is supposedly the area 51 site, aliens, ya know

  7. 26062 says:

    an interesting read it may be nothing….but some here might remember. i forget if it was mentioned here or in the forum a while back while filming was going on. it had to do with the scenes they were filming in the cemetary and inside a garage where something had dug ” a big hole” in the ground inside it….just read on that site some of the things “trogl” is short for…alot of creature and cave/hole in ground dwelling cratures…..even mention of a cave dwelling fish

    Troglichthys rosae
    A cave fish.

    • cul8r says:

      interesting stuff… but not likely part of the viral

      I found that this species is studied to understand degenerative evolution, because its blind. It thrives in caves because it doesnt need light to survive.

  8. snackman says:

    I think that
    T – Training / Testing / Technology
    R – Research
    O – Operations
    G – Groom
    L – Lake

    might be right because it makes sense to me. You know since area 51 is a secret place that does secret stuff they could be underground testing aliens. (Although TROGL means underground in Greek) Any way we don’t know if this is officially correct though.

  9. Meagan says:

    I cant wait till we find out! lol

  10. JM6687 says:

    Random thought but has anyone let the official website for Super 8 just sit in their browser? Remember on the site, after being left up for 6 minutes a sound bite was heard in the background. Maybe something like that will happen on the official website.

  11. Jason says:

    I think the african american man is Mysterio. I don’t think the puppetmasters would reveal what Mr. Minker looks like this soon in the game.

  12. JohnG says:

    One thing I do know is that that man is Glynn Turman a great character acter, who was the science teacher in Gremlins, also a Spielberg movie.

  13. Meagan says:

    oh wow great find!

  14. Greyson says:

    now on the chat is says abort “busy abort ‘no carrier” …

  15. joe says:

    Did anyone think it may not be straight forward and actually the other guy is his dad?

  16. cul8r says:

    I know it cant be … but the white guys looks like Walter Bishop (John Noble) from Fringe

  17. DemonG says:

    What bothers me is this connection between mr mesterio and Josh . The way I see it is that Mr.M is looking for the dad .

    He may be a friend or even a agent ,but more likely a friend. He doesn’t know where to find dad . And Josh dad sent all his info on where he is to the only person he can trust his son .

    Now Josh being slow and all can’t find all the clues or know how to read them . Mr.M is the only one that can help him .

    So if I look at it like this I think that Joshes dad still have something of importance.

  18. SkyRyder says:

    What is he holding in his hands?

  19. John says:

    Has anyone listened to the audio thats attached? And if so can you understand what is being said?

  20. MicMagellan says:

    ! Bill Cosby is his dad. I don’t think so, haven’t we seen a glimpse of Josh… Atleast a hand. Jus maybe he has vitiligo, and the cola can help his major pigmentation.

  21. MicMagellan says:

    Whats that on the Desk, and what the hell is that in the shadow behind him..? Is this shot taken right before the “attack” That device in his hand is quite nifty. No gun i ever saw has a handle like that. (looks hard to grip) let alone has rear mounted cartridge.

    Another assumption: this is the DEV. .psect or .comt

    It either combats irreversible chromosome damage or brain cells regenerates

    Break out the LSD where going to the movies…

  22. C9URK says:

    anyone messed around with the picture incase there is something hidden in it? unfortunetly my skills stop at just looking at the damn thing. lol

    • MicMagellan says:

      …go on leak it insider.

      • C9URK says:

        sorry to disappiont but im not an insider….and before you say ‘Thats what an insider would say’ im really not. lol

        • MicMagellan says:

          your right they usually end ever post with a CLUE or … is it me or did everyone forget what we are looking for… what’ve been searching for since thanksgiving. Now that we got it folks are stuck on a silly phrase.

          I dont know about you ricky bobby, but im a do’rrr not a thinker. Lets see this trailer. B4 BFF!@%^^LA & my B-Day

  23. Meagan says:

    bwahaha…thats not danny glover…I hope not! Last time i saw him he was alot older looking and that just angels in the outfield XD

  24. Jason says:

    Heeey guys. Got some big news for ya.

    I just got an envelope in the mail from rocket poppeteers. Inside is a certificate saying my astronaut name (which ended up a typo as Golin, from what I wanted to be Goblin, how embarassing) And in big letters, it says: You have been acccepted into the Rocket Poppeteers Astronaut Trainning Porgram, Fleet Designation:
    Super Speedflier Fleet is known for its agility and optimism. Once activated, use you astronaut name and Indentification code ********** at to begin your training, acquire new missions, swap Poppeteer secrets, and make your Fleet proud!
    Signed General R. Poppeteer, P.M.C.

    So yeah, that’s it. Now I should start finding a frame for this baby. Anybody else an Orange Speedflier?!

  26. CzM says:

    Doesn’t the man in the picture look like he could have been one of the scientists who worked on the Dharma Initiative from Lost?

  27. TD says:

    Or that TROGL is a new research program like DHARMA?

  28. Keith mills says:

    The black actor is Glynn turman from the gremlins movie. He played the school teacher.

  29. Rocket Rob says:

    The Roman Numerals in the Air Force Seal on the ID Badge…..
